    That yield is higher than those of many of its best-run peers, including Disney (NYSE:DIS) and CBS (NYSE: CBS). The two media companies with higher yields are AT&T (NYSE:T) and Viacom (NASDAQ: VIA) (NASDAQ: VIAB). AT&T is more of a mobile-first utility, and it pays a very high percentage of its net income out as a dividend. Meanwhile, Viacom has been beaten down thanks to its sub-scale, media-only portfolio, which is not especially well-positioned in today’s world.

But despite its beating fourth-quarter expectations on profits and revenues, its share price dipped a few percentage points Tuesday.

Top 10 Medical Stocks To Buy Right Now

Marijuana stocks are hot now, as is the social and political climate around them.

But true investors know that if you’re going to be a successful investor you have to be able to spot objective opportunities and not be pulled by emotional or political feelings.

Few issues exemplify this more than the new wave of cannabis legislation sweeping the country.

At this point, recreational marijuana is legal in nine states and medical marijuana is legal in 30. That’s 60% of the U.S. states that see some reason to legalize marijuana. And cannabidiol (CBD) a non-psychoactive ingredient found in marijuana is legal in 17 states to treat children with epilepsy or severe seizures.

Canada has also legalized recreational marijuana and it has some of the most mature cannabis companies in North America.

Because the U.S. is still a patchwork of states that allow limited, full or no use of legal cannabis, it’s a challenge for an industry — and by extension marijuana stocks — to truly develop. What you have is companies that have moved into the most open cannabis markets to establish themselves in the hopes of being able to scale up their business nationally, when the time comes.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Rick Munarriz]

    Tuesday was rough for Glu Mobile (NASDAQ:GLUU) investors. Shares of the mobile gaming company plunged 13% after it posted poorly received fourth-quarter results. It’s a big hit for one of the hottest mobile gaming stocks over the past couple of years, but it’s not much a setback when you stretch out your horizon beyond Tuesday’s trading day. 

  • [By Harsh Chauhan]

    Glu Mobile (NASDAQ:GLUU) stock has more than doubled over the past year, getting a recent boost from an impressive first-quarter report that revealed all-round improvements in the company’s business. This is a massive turnaround for Glu as Wall Street wasn’t convinced about Glu’s ability to grow profitably at this point last year, when its losses were mounting, but it now seems to have put those speculations to rest quite emphatically.

  • [By Jamal Carnette, CFA]

    Although it’s far beneath Wall Street’s radar, Glu Mobile (NASDAQ:GLUU) stock has quietly had an amazing year. On a year-over-year basis, shares of the mobile app game developer have advanced 120% versus 19% for the Russell 2000 small-cap index. Still, it would be a folly to call Glu Mobile’s public-market performance a success. Shares are down 45% since its 2007 IPO, while the index has increased 140%.

    Starbuck’s Corp. (Nasdaq: SBUX) Executive Chair Howard Schultz announced he will depart the company. Many are speculating he will pursue a career in politics and potentially seek the Democratic nomination for president in 2020. Schultz had previously denied any speculation around a role in government; but his recent comments suggest that “public service” will be a part of his future plans. Gold prices dipped below $1,300 per ounce as markets continue to speculate on the likelihood of additional interest rate hikes in 2018. We believe this is solid buying opportunity for investors. The reason why gold is going to get a nice boost: ongoing trade tensions between the United States and the rest of the globe.

Top 10 Healthcare Equipment Companies To Own In Right Now

Two years ago, we pulled Fidelity Contrafund (FCNTX) from the Kiplinger 25 and replaced it with Fidelity New Millennium (FMILX). We had no qualms about Contras performance or the estimable Will Danoff, the funds manager since 1990. Our concern was with its immense asset base, $114 billion at the time. We worried that Danoff would have trouble steering the battleship through increasingly turbulent markets. New Millennium, by contrast, had $3 billion in assets, about the same as it does today.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Our peer group is up an average of 46% over the past 4 weeks in response to a 30% rebound in the 12-month strip NYMEX oil price. Some of the largest gainers include Hold and Sell rated stocks that we would not chase such asDenbury Resources (Sell, +138%), Halcon Resources (HK) (Sell, +147%), Jones Energy (JONE) (Hold, +166%), Rex Energy (REXX) (Sell, +60%), Sanchez Energy (SN) (Hold, +93%), Ultra Petroleum (UPL) (Sell, +61%), andWhiting Petroleum (Hold, +103%), which have outperformed the E&P Index (+32%) over the same time period. Balance sheets and/or well level returns remain challenged for these companies despite improved oil prices. While we believe oil markets should re-balance over the next 12 to 15 months, the recent recovery to $40 could reverse during 2Q16 as bloated inventories continue to rise, new volumes from Iran pressure an oversupplied market, and a highly anticipated decline in non-OPEC supply (especially in the U.S.), is not as steep as expected. The risk of an oil price retracement, which would significantly pressure the recent out-performers, outweighs the upside in these stocks, in our view. However, we are raising our target prices on Buy ratedAnadarko Petroleum ($54 from $48), Concho Resources (CXO) ($120 from $109), Matador Resources (MTDR) ($22 from $21),Noble Energy (NBL) ($40 from $34), SM Energy (SM) ($22 from $15), Rice Energy ($14 from $12), Pioneer Natural Resources (PXD) ($155 from $135),Continental Resources ($32 from $28), and Parsley Energy (PE) ($24 from $23). We believe our Buy-rated stocks are better positioned to weather challenging oil markets.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Roberto Pedone]

    Another stock that’s starting to move within range of triggering a big breakout trade is Nam Tai Electronics (NTE), which is an electronics manufacturing and design services provider to a select group of the world’s leading OEMs of telecommunications and consumer electronic products. This stock has been destroyed by the sellers so far in 2013, with shares off sharply by 41%.

    If you look at the chart for Nam Tai Electronics, you’ll notice that this stock has been uptrending for the last month and change, with shares moving higher from its low of $6.05 to its recent high of $8.38 a share. During that uptrend, shares of NTE have been making mostly higher lows and higher highs, which is bullish technical price action. That move has now pushed shares of NTE within range of triggering a big breakout trade.

    Traders should now look for long-biased trades in NTE if it manages to break out above some key near-term overhead resistance levels at $8.38 to $8.79 a share with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above those levels with volume that hits near or above its three-month average action of 647,483 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then NTE will set up to re-fill some of its previous gap down zone from April that started near $11.50 a share. If this stock gets into that gap with volume, then the upside is tremendous and we could easily see NTE hit $11 to $12 a share.

    Traders can look to buy NTE off any weakness to anticipate that breakout and simply use a stop that sits right below its 50-day at $7.42 a share, or below more key support at $7.22 a share. One can also buy NTE off strength once it takes out that breakout levels with volume and then simply use a stop that sits a comfortable percentage from your entry point.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Shauna O’Brien]

    Susquehanna reported on Tuesday that it has raised its rating on Broadcom Corporation (BRCM).

    The firm has upgraded BRCM from “Neutral” to “Positive,” and has lifted the company’s price target from $33 to $35. This price target suggests a 23% upside from the stock’s current price of $26.91.

    Analyst Chris Caso commented: “Our downgrade of BRCM in May was predicated on already high Street expectations on handsets and no notable improvement in networking to drive upside. We think expectations and the stock price have now been sufficiently reset ahead of what we expect to be catalysts in 2014 including the iPhone 6 product cycle, potential improvement in networking and the impact from the recent Renesas acquisition. In addition, after several years of overspending on their handset initiatives, we think we are now closer to the point where the company either captures a return on that investment or is forced to moderate spending either of which benefit profitability. We see the upcoming December analyst meeting as a potential intermediate catalyst.”

    Broadcom shares were up 38 cents, or 1.41%, during pre-market trading Tuesday. The stock is down 19% YTD.

Hot European Companies To Watch For 2016

The Federal Reserve is widely expected to leave interest rates unchanged today. But perhaps standing pat with the target Fed funds rate at a mildly positive 0.25%-0.50% range should be viewed as a minor victory in the global context of monetary policy these days. Holding rates steady at just slightly above zero may seem like the poster child for dovish policy in the grand scheme of central banking history. But there’s a hawkish aura to Fed policy relative to the negative rates that are creeping into the global economy in other corners.

In theory, going negative is intended to remedy sluggish growth and elevated recession risk and so the sight of positive rates is an encouraging sign for the macro outlook. On that basis, there’s trouble elsewhere. Six central banksincluding the Bank of Japan and the European Central Bank (ECB)have rolled out negative rates recently, according to the IMF’s count. The IMF, by the way, is on board with the policy, explaining earlier this month that “we support the introduction of negative policy rates by some central banks given the significant risks we see to the outlook for growth and inflation.” Leading the charge lower is the Swedish Riksbank, with a main policy rate of -0.5% and deposit rate of -1.25%.
